Vikings star running back Adrian Peterson and defensive end Sharrif Floyd helped set Twitter ablaze with praise for Denver's linebacker Von Miller during the Broncos' 24-10 Super Bowl victory over Carolina on Sunday.

Peterson and Floyd were two of several Vikings players active on the Twitterverse during Super Bowl 50. At first glance, Floyd was the most active on Twitter and Instagram, and even helped spread the Crying Jordan-Cam Newton memes.

Peterson affirmed Miller as Super Bowl MVP.

Veteran linebacker Chad Greenway celebrated Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch after his dramatic retirement announcement via Twitter during the Super Bowl.

Vikings defensive end Justin Trattou tweeted a picture of the Super Bowl ring he won with the New York Giants in 2011.

Wide receiver Charles Johnson kept his tweets focused on the non-football entertainment. He praised Lady Gaga's vocals and got a good laugh when halftime performer Beyonce almost fell during her dance routine.

Some of the other top tweets from the night included a GIF of Eli Manning showing no emotion after the Broncos added to their lead late in the game, Golden State Warriors Stephen Curry in a meme with Crying Jordan, Carolina's linebacker Thomas Davis posting a photo of his broken arm stiched up, and Bill Romanowski apologized for referring to Newton as "boy."
